So this is a custom ordered Comexim Ardea Half Cup in a 65O. I didn't get any alterations done with this one.
Hmm. I'm not really sure where to start with this one. The materials used to make this bra were lovely. They were soft, and they didn't irritate my skin. The bow details were cute. I was a little disappointed in how dull the colors were in real life though. I was expecting more of a vibrant navy blue and pink details, so if you were debating this bra based on the colors of it via the Comexim model's pictures, you're going to be disappointed.
On to the ... fit itself: Yikes.
-Let's start with the straps in relativity to my frame. It's absolutely comical. I'm slender and apparently, tiny (so says my husband). The strap placement is worse than an Ewa bra. I would have to have my straps moved in at least 4 cm to even attempt to fix the glaring problem with the fit itself.
-The cups are cut really short/shallow. Or maybe I'm just pressing that issue because my Ewa bras offer better coverage due to their lace panel added to the top if the cup. I said in the picture review that perhaps Comexim should consider doing something similar in their small band/large cup bras.
-The cups are cut strange regardless. Their padding is geared more towards an Ewa S style thickness, but at the same time, the cut itself is halfway between a plunge and a half cup.
-The wires used were 12inches long, while the length of the cups where the wires were located was 12.5 inches.
-The gore doesn't tack
-The weight of my breasts almost seem to push the bra band down.
-Lastly, I don't even think my larger side fits into a K/O cup.
Edit to add my ribcage is measuring 28.5inches right now.
